My Go-To Uniform Of Blazer, Skinnies & Heels


On the day I wore this outfit to the office, I had a (blog-related) phone interview with an editor in regards to something top secret that I can't talk about... but that's only because she wouldn't elaborate and couldn't reveal what it was for exactly. Even though I'd love to tell you what it was about I can't, because I just don't know myself. Anyway, I digress!

One of the questions I was asked was pretty much what my go-to uniform is, and I wasn't sure at first. After a little deliberation I said that it's probably coloured skinny jeans, a loose fitting top or shirt with a blazer and heels... I looked down whilst on the phone and realised I'd described exactly what I was wearing. Predictable, much??!

I'm sure your "uniform" is something that changes regularly over time, however, which is a good job otherwise we'd get stuck-in-a-rut with our wardrobes - I'm sure it would have been something completely different a year ago.

I'll keep checking back on posts from a year ago just to make sure ;)

This weekend I'm up in London: seeing Mr. James McAvoy (in the flesh!) doing Macbeth on his last night in the West End. If he looks directly at me like he did last time I saw him in a play, I Won't. Be. Able. To. Cope....!

Have a BRILLIANT weekend, whatever you're doing or whoever you're drooling over!!

  8. Yum. James McAvoy. I'm not sure I have a uniform, apart from a penchant for tweed.

  13. I love your "uniform" and was interested to see that you have rolled up the bottom of your skinnies. Being vertically challenged, I might do this the next time I try on jeans or trousers and find they are too long - and see if it works for me! My uniform is similar in winter months (like now!) though I wear short-sleeved tops, linen trousers and ballerinas in the summer.

  14. You look so good, I especially like, well, all of it, actually, ha ha! James McAvoy?!? Oh you are so lucky, I have a huge crush on him, he's so foxy. Do you have time to join Adrienne and me for "How I Wear My: Metallics"? You can send me a picture by April 30. We'd love to have you with us once again my dear! XO, Jill

  20. I hope whatever it is that your interview was about comes out to your extreme advantage. My uniform for the summer here looks to be heels, skinnies and a floaty but modest top against the triple digit heat that's on its way. You look lovely here, of course.

  21. Gorgeous pair of wedge heels.. perfect staple for spring/summer. Love the stripe blazer too, a fresh take to the usual nautical ones.

    Stop by my page and say, hi! sometimes :)

  24. I don't think there's anything wrong with having a go-to outfit formula- it's certainly working for you, you look great! And I wouldn't be able to cope with James McAvoy up close in person either. :)
